Unipol and Homestay at the University of Leeds


Over the last 3 years Unipol has been working closely with the Language Centre to support new international students in finding accommodation. For the past 18 months Unipol has taken a more active role in supporting the Language Centre with their Homestay Programme to include introducing a new Homestay Code of Standards under which over 30 Homestay hosts are now fully accredited (please note we are not currently recruiting new hosts). 

This extends Unipol’s relationship with the University of Leeds into an area of particular importance for both organisations: that of international students, and plays on Unipol’s existing expertise on managing and improving standards. 

This also allows Unipol to offer more short-term accommodation options for students in the city.

 Homestay hosts offer a single bedroom, usually within 40 minutes of campus. You'll get breakfast and evening meals on weekdays, and breakfast, lunch and evening meals at weekends. Some hosts are flexible about meal provision. As well as improving your English, you really integrate into traditional British culture, it's a home from home! You'll also be supported by the Homestay Co-ordinator during your stay.
